Clarisonic Mia: week three report

Three weeks into the Clarisonic experiment, I can really see the difference in my skin.  The Mia is truly justifying the investment.  My troublesome skin is beginning to clear when nothing else seemed to help.  I credit this device.Regarding my skeeves, Annie recommended spritzing alcohol on the brush head to freshen it.  For more major cleanings, the brush head should be removed and left to dry.  Don’t forget to spend some time along the neck and hairline; these often neglected areas need attention.  You can even give the ears a once around. 

 

I’m starting to see what all the fuss is about.

Clarisonic Mia: week two report

For the past fourteen days I’ve faithfully used the Clarisonic Mia twice a day.  I’ve experimented with different face washes with decent results.  I particularly like the way the vibrating brush converts non-foamy cleansers into more effective make-up removers.The Clarisonic Mia runs through a minute cycle and automatically shuts off.  One interval isn’t enough, and I almost always go twice around.

It does have an addictive quality, and I can see how this product has a cult following.  The buffing action leaves skin smooth and soft.  Though I wouldn’t consider the results drastic.

I’m already getting skeeved by the brush.  You have to be extra vigilant about keeping it clean, or it really defeats the purpose, doesn’t it? 

Clarisonic Mia: week one report

After struggling with persistent skin issues recently, a trustworthy and glowy-faced friend recommended the Clarisonic face brush.  Having owned the “Classic” and “Mia,” she recommended the less expensive and more portable Mia, arguing the expanded features of the Classic cannot justify the added cost.A week ago, I received my very own MiaClarisonic claims the vibrating and rotating brush removes six times more makeup than traditional cleansing.  I concur with this claim; my face passes the white towel test after using the Clarisonic.  Without question, skin is cleaner and makeup is thoroughly and gently eradicated.  The mild humming exfoliation feels like a mini facial massage.  The brush works with virtually any cleanser and the waterproof design makes it shower-friendly.After the first few uses, smoother skin emerges and texture noticeably improves.  Makeup glides on skin.  Breakouts have improved, but this isn’t a magic machine.Consider the following drawbacks.  The initial investment is around $120.  The replacement heads are pricey (2/$40).  And who needs another gadget that requires an outlet to charge?  It is easy to over do it and cause irritation.  Twice a day might be too much for some, even with the sensitive brush.

I look forward to experiencing what the Mia has to offer in week two, and I promise to share it with all of you.  xox, DC
